Speaking strictly from the couch, both the front and rear brake calipers look like something off an early to mid 70's CB 500/550 Four. (both being front calipers as normally those bikes had drum rear brakes)

You sir are fucking awesome. I think you're spot on. Any ideas on that funky rear master with the finned top?

I'm pretty sure that the rear master cylinder you have was originally a front master cylinder (hand lever - front brake) unit, but I can't put my finger on what it came off of just yet. I'd like to say it used to have a remote reservoir that come off of where the plug bolt is. It's been modified a bit for sure.

If it's Honda, it'll come to me before the end of the day.


Front Brake Master Cylinder for Honda CB400 maybe? See if it has a part number on it anywhere, may not even be Honda.

You'll have to discuss that with the old man. The intent is for him to be able to race the vintage class at pacific and the ridge. Might put in a good word for ya.

24 bucks for a rebuild kit for the airheart. Have the other rebuild kits lined up also for the front and rear caliper plus front master cylinder. Going to go look a them this morning to confirm the parts before I order though.

All in all looks like about 70 bucks for all the kits. Not too shabby!

He made his own hubs...how awesome is that!!!

Can't wait to see the video.

Looks just like the period racers I've looked at in old magazines...love the tank/seat/wheels.

I remember talking to an machinist about pipes on his old racers...see the reverse cone on the end of the pipe too. The old guy said a good design could give you an edge..think he mostly did dirt track on old Triumphs/BSAs stuff like that. Like the "expansion chamber" like powerbomb? thing. very cool old school.

Some brake parts arrived, the rest Friday night. Going to be busy hell come Friday night with complete brake reassembly, installation, and bleeding. Had to get new pads, so went with some Vesrah units. Both masters were seized and the calipers don't look like they'll be any better. Soaking in a solvent tank until I can get home. Not even 100 PSI air would budge them.....

Gave the old broken windshield to a guy who is going to make me not one but TWO for the cost of materials in addition to some new white number plates. They won't be done by Saturday but I'm not disappointed at all. Such is the price for dipping into my "favor bank". Just glad I have one!!

Once it's completely reassembled I'll get some pics up here I promise.
